ARTS in NYC is FSU's semester-long 'Study Domestic' program, administered by the School of Dance in the FSU College of Fine Arts.
After a two-year hiatus, ARTS in NYC returns in January 2023 when thirteen students will travel to the Big Apple for coursework, behind-the-scenes tours, internships and supplemental studio classes at some of the world's most renowned companies.
Metrocards, city housing, performance tickets, and supplemental studio classes...ARTS in NYC is an important transition from classroom-to-career, but the cost is high.

ARTS in NYC is directed by Hannah Schwadron, MFA, Ph.D. Donors are invited to attend a Guest Lecture with Dr. Schwadron on November 9 at the home of Bobbie & Segundo Fernandez.
ARTS in NYC introduces students to the professional dance world, not as tourists but as working members of the inner community. The program offers a supportive way to study for a semester in NYC while figuring out how to negotiate the city and the arts. As a fully credited program, ARTS in NYC offers structured classes and carefully selected internships that help students assess how they might fit into the field. ARTS in NYC is a mentored system of interlocking classes, performances and events that immerse students in NYC arts and culture. This enables students to use the city as an arts resource and allows them to begin serious networking and gain confidence for the future.
Guest speakers have included: Monica Bill Barnes, Bill T. Jones, Ana “Rockafella” Garcia, “Storyboard P,” Noemie LaFrance, Ephrat Asherie, Brahms “Bravo” LaFortune, Okwui Okpokwasili, Doug Elkins, Nora Chipaumire and Jorge “PopMaster Fabel” Pabon. Additionally, participating students enjoy opportunities to engage with the broadening network of ARTS in NYC alumni to build professional contacts.
